dictator. earlier this week obama administration was praising morsey for his help. >> let me note our particular gratitude to president morsey of egypt for his commitment to regional security as well as to u.n. secretary general bon can i moon for his diligent efforts and of course president obama and secretary clinton have worked tirelessly to bring the parties to agreement. >> how should the u.s. handle morsey now. lt. ravel peters joins us. nice to sigh. morsey has said i want to be president of all egypt. every egyptian. he said i simply did this power grab or didn't put in those words, i simply did these decrees because there are all members of the mubarak regime the guys you threw out that are still lurking that i'm trying to protect you from. do you buy that. >> i think what president morse is i was really say something hey, democracy is great. -- each mubarak felt obliged to pay deference to the judiciary. you have to go to saddam hussein to find somebody who has seized so much power. basically morsi says nothing matters except what i say matters. it's a terrible embarrassment
to a senior obama administration official, it was the president -- president obama's two phone calls today that "closed the deal." is that your accurate understanding of how things played out. and what did the u.s. offer to various parties to ultimately sweeten the deal? >> well, president obama played an outstanding role to help achieve the cease-fire, and also secretary of state hillary clinton who shuttled the stop between jerusalem and cairo, and was also instrumental in achieving the agreement. the sweetener is support for israel, support for israel diplomatically, it was very important for us. also the support for the iron dome missile system which you saw working, anderson, and working so outstandingly, taking out about 85-95% of all the incoming rockets and denying hamas the opportunity or ability to strike at our 5 and a half million israelis who are under rocket fire. >> we talked about this, ambassador, a few hours ago. there have now been apparently five rockets launched, a number of them intercepted. but three of them landed in southern israel. how do you see that? how serious
of the obama administration in the the second term weren't too great. there was present up demand. and ready to take off, and really a question of how much, how they think the obama administration is going to burden that economy and make it take off. >> a word, charles. >> it seems to me, every year at the end of today, we have reports of how stuff is flying off the shelves and consumers are out there and when it's all over, you get to the numbers and it's either down or flat. so, on that dismal note i wish everybody a happy holiday. >> you are our favorite one, and with thanksgiving in the books, many of you moved on to another christmas tree and holiday decorations, a reminder how dangerous that can be next. ♪ [ male announcer ] it's that time of year again. medicare open enrollment. time to compare plans and costs. you don't have to make changes. but it never hurts to see if you can find better coverage, save money, or both. and check out the preventive benefits you get after the health care law. ♪ open enrollment ends dember 7th. so now's the time. visit care.gov or call 1-800-medica
regarding egypt. >> reporter: so far the obama administration is not calling out mohamed morsi directly. president obama spoke to mohamed morsi on wednesday to thank him for his personal leadership and handling the cease-fire and days later the state department said in a statement, the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and individual rights and the rule of law, consistent with egypt's international commitment. it goes on to say, quote, we call for all egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues, piece fully, and, through democratic dialogue. but, no mention, harris, of mohamed morsi by name. >> harris: molly henneberg, thanks, molly. we move on to hollywood and the world. actor larry hagman was so good at being bad. he has passed away, and people are laying flowers at his star at the hollywood walk of fame. he died yesterday in dallas, again working as the character that maids him famous the world over, best known for his role as is the s
asked about u.s. pressure but also the u.s. playing a greater role. if the obama administration says let's let them settle it themself but they said we'll play a more aggressive role. that's the challenge for the obama administration in the second term where as in the first term they wanted a light footprint. >> there's benghazi. the president, one aspect -- we talked about the investigation. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some as soon as this week and one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight and name susan rice to be -- secretary of state and do you think the senate will confirm him. >> president obama has confided in me on his secretary of state. i rather think he'll appoint susan rice. i'm not a fab of -- fan of hers but i think she'll be confirmed. john kerry might be a worse secretary of state so maybe one goes ahead and lets him have the secretary of state of wants. other maybe one votes against it as senators say she wasn't for
in the senate so much will be the problem for the obama administration, but republicans in the house of representatives, especially those from the tea party movement and others will be a serious problem. >> what was an important group of republicans during the debt ceiling debate while this election has changed the arithmet arithmet arithmetic, republicans in the house will be key to this negotiation. the two men that need to hammer out this deal, just like it was over the summer, is still president obama and spooeseaker boehner. >> i don't think there's any doubt the president will have his democratic base on board. the question is, will boehner have his republican base on board? will he be able to bring those in? >> those talks continue. >> we'll find out. >>> both congress and the white house certainly under increased intense pressure right now to make a deal. our new poll shows voters are getting rather impatient. let's bring in our chief political analyst, gloria borger, who's also working this. new poll numbers. who's going to get the most blame if there's no deal? >> let's sta
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
that -- at the top. you would think that the obama administration would have bought their own tweet. >> brown: howie, what is the administration asking its supporters to do through this tash tag? i mean, is it just to get the word out or is there something more explicit? >> well, it's all about mobilizing public opinion which is easier to do when n a campaign when off clear choice-- barack obama or mitt romney. with the romney campaign having evaporated the democrats have an advantage on this. so obama for america, the digital group that was created to help get president obama elected to a second term has sent out an e-mail with graphics to its supporters on millions of people oner, the mail list urging them to get involved on the president's proposals and to share some of this information with their friends. >> brown: we're taking a look at that now. so that's, lauren, part of this -- this is what you're talking about, the permanent campaign. >> it just never stops. they're saying share this with your friends. make a youtube video, post it on your facebook and your e-mail. the question really comes
the united states and the obama administration and obstacles in creating a genuine palestinian peace process. we will take all of that up tonight with admiral james lyons. congressman louie gohmert of texas will also be here fred also, president obama has no plan to announce tax cuts and spending cuts. why they don't add up to anything meaningful. lou: the testimony before congress has been surveyed. congressman mike rogers. everyone else has testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i do agree. and the deputies committee, i'm sure the white house representatives of national security from the national security agency council had their orders. lou: general david petraeus says for his part, one of the confusing things -- confusion between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 and what he said over the past few days in congress, it represents what happens when you try to avoid tipping off terrorists. do you buy that? >> according to congressman king, it indicates that betray d petraeus deadlock. lou: is appropriate for a military man to take upon himself or herself
him. you have heard that the obama administration has pointed out that it has given cooperation. and i agree, where i would disagree is that i think hamas has shown that not withstanding sanctions it has increased it's a built to inflict pain on israel. this started because of the firing of the rockets and over the course of the last week we have seen rockets landing aimed at jerusalem and i think that hamas has more power than we might have expected. >> the interesting question will be whether hamas gains from this politically. they have been able to survive and they have these pin prick attacks and these unguided missiles have been very ineffective. they don't kill people and don't disrupt israel in a meaningful sense. the question is are they more popular on the street. there is evidence that they are unpopular with the palestinian people. they have stuck with them and partly because of the pressure, they don't want to oust hamas because that would be doing what the israelis want. hamas is not popular. >> you have been saying that for several nights that they are not all that popula
to be a foreign policy achievement for the obama administration. many problems remain in the volatile of the tough neighborhoods. here is ed henry. >> president obama has a lot riding on the outcome in the middle east. violence flaring up weeks before the start of the second term. he was on the phone again today with two leaders he has a complicated relationship with. egyptian president mohammed morsi and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the president getting netanyahu to agree to the tentative cease-fire with the carrot of additional u.s. funding for iron dome and other missile defense progra programs. >> i have agreed we will fight weapons of terror. >> u.s. and israel knows they send the rockets to hamas through egypt, which is why the president is using more of a stick in the conversation with morsi. today, hillary clinton praising and pushing morsi, member of the muslim brothe brotherhood. >> this is a critical new moment. they are assuming the responsibility of the leadership that made the country corner stone of the regional stability and peace. >> israeli officials are blunter. p
. officials in the obama administration are praying that a cease-fire between bitter enemies halfway around the world will last. and an update on the fragile truth between hamas and israel. >> life in gaza and southern israel appears to be normal. as markets reopen and children play outside for the first time in eight days. and in a telling sign, israelis troops began to pull back from the border with gaza. as many as 40,000 israeli reservists hold up for a possible ground invasion were allowed to return home. >> hamas and thousands of supporters took to the streets of gaza today with its leader, and declaring the recent violence, a victory for the isl islamic militant group. >> and this victory is over and will never come back again. >> despite more than 160 dead and hundreds more injured, palestinians are celebrating, the cease-fire agreement not only calls for an end to the violence, but also, the easing of israel's blockade of gaza and palestinian major demands for the past five years, as the fragile cease-fire continues, israeli leaders are claiming victory even though the jewish state
. >> but now concern from the obama administration, state department spokeswoman victoria newland saying the decisions and declarations announced on november 22nd raise concerns for many egyptians and for the international community. one of the aspirations of the revolution was to insthur power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. while president obama was on his southeast asia trip this week, he spoke by phone with president morsi in an attempt to seal a israeli-gaza cease-fire. it is a relationship of trust. it's too early to tell if this latest move will change that. >> let's wait and see how morsy uses the powers. up until now, he's done pretty well in terms -- from the western perspective in working with israel. he has a lot to prove to the outside world and his own people. >> and that was dan loathian reporting. the obama administration is calling for call nm egyptian and encouraging the government to
ally of hamas. it is yet to be seen what the response will be from the obama administration to these new powers that he has awarded himself. he has also ordered a new trial for his predecessor hosni mubarak. we will continue to watch the troubles developing inee lit up and the protest both in favor of and against that country's president. we'll keep an eye on it "happening now." also this fox news alert, holiday shoppers nationwide out in droves to take advantage of black friday tkaoerblgs man black friday deals, many of them cutting thanksgiving short to get in lines. they are offering deep discounts on popular items today. it's not all fun and games, thousands of walmart workers are off off the job. and stores are trying to recoup some of their losses from storm sandy. those stories coming up in hour. first, brand-new stories and breaking news. >> the hamas terror group now accusing israel of breaking the cease-fire rules two days after a truce was reached along the israel-gaza border. they are investigating reports of a palestinian man getting killed today. >> a massive c
, that in the weeks before the election, the obama administration tried to speed up the process of putting permanent rums in place when it comes to the unmanned drone strikes in case president obama did not win reelection. the new york times reports two officials were saying, so the new president would inherent new standards and procedures and jept and state department argued for more restraint. tragedy in bangladesh, a fire races through a garment factory killing at least 112 workers. many people were trapped at staircases gave way and there were no emergency exits. no word yet on the cause of this fire. this fire is reminiscent of devastating triangle shirt waist factory back in new york city in 1911 in which 146 garment workers were killed. and they started-- dave, what am i doing reading sports? >> go ahead, it's about gender and switching. >> alisyn: yeah. >> dave: and boys could have dolls and toys catalog and you can read a notre dame story. >> alisyn: you have to go with your strong suit. it's not about gender. >> dave: your daughters can play with the legos. >> alisyn: i'm going to do is ph
administration has failed to respond to at least a dozen congressional letters adding that the obama white house was keen on the obama raid and should offer the same transparency on benghazi. unfair to the american people and the families of the victims of the benghazi attack to not provide the same level of defailed facts in an accounting for what i consider a major national security failure. on thursday last week, a classified section. fox news told that james clapper hid of the u.s. intelligence community was definite. his team did not make controversial changes to the talking points used by ambassador susan rice. critics say the changes like taking out the word at divide played down the terrorism angle. on tuesday this week in a total reversal. clapper's office says they were responsible for the changes. >> i think clapper has to say and has to say publicly whether he advocated the youtube video theory, whether he pressed it on the white house and others in the intelligence community, and, if so, did he do that at the direction of the white house? >> democrats accused the republicans of poli
-seller the amateur on the obama administration this is as if the obama team did not -- it just knew exactly wat would unfold. that is how together they were >> i'll understand that. the cost per ad, the republicans have to pay, many times more than the democrats. they bought there rate and they bought them in a very inefficient way. the whole campaign was just shot through with inefficiency. lou: de think it will be as easy for the republicans to raise money next time? >> people talking about, is there a silver lining for the republican. no doubt there are a lot of attractive ptential candidates. you can go on and on. the question is, the base which controls the primary situation, will they go for any of these people, these populist conservatives overvalue conservatives. lou: let me pose another. i was talking with someone who i will not name. basically the republican party has a strange feeling of being in the buzz around and tells a political party. >> we need to get back to basics. a party of great principle you can be a member of he republican party and believe 99 percent of what the platform --
the pivotal role of egypt. yes, egypt is pivotal but don't underestimate the role of the obama administration analyst ability to put all the pieces together. without the united states, i would argue there will be no political horizon, that the peace process will not be revived. that's why i'm hoping that president obama in his second term will invest political capital in bringing about and helping to bring about a two-state solution, a secure jewish state and also as independence and viable palestinian state that deals with the root causes of the fighting between hamas and israel. >> and getting back to mohamed morsy and egypt, morsy may be getting pats on the back from the international community but at home certainly much different right now, declaring a whole lot of power. did he use the cover of the israel, ga zag conflict do you think to enact his new powers? >> i have no doubt in my mind that egyptian president mohamed morsy has proved to be very shrewd and calculating. using this particular moment that basically everyone praised morsy is, the americans, israelis, europeans. he used thi
government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything meaningful and we'll talk with the ceo of cke restaurants, andy puzder and says, tax rates will stifle economic growth and our favorite doctors are here, to psychoanalyze the scandal that brought down the head of the cia. we are delighted to be joined, now, by the admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. it is always good to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> nice to be back with you, lou. >> lou: let's turn, to first, the talking points. which, it seems that no one after general petraeus made it clear there had been changes in those talking points, the testimony before congress has bee

me channel the obama administration for a second. this is how they're responding to the proposal. next! it ain't going to happen. he can sit here and sing all day saying put it on the table. trust me, it's not going to be on the table. so it's cute. it's an op-ed, it's great. but trust me, even he knows, the president is not going to put the affordable care act on the table and so it's not crazy like a fox. it's simply crazy. >> okay. >> what about the possibility though, i think this is a reality. to get a grand bargain that works, and i'm not a crazy person. i don't think we're getting one. >> so you claim. >> so i claim. my own self evaluation. but in order to actually get that done, we do have to make changes to health care. and i believe the president agrees with that. but we do. >> yeah. i think that's absolutely right. actually one of the tricky questions is going to be how the president is going to introduce some of these ideas about cost control that weren't part of that original debate. there is a lot of talk about administrative price controls, all pay rent setting, te
anybody from being confirmed as secretary of state in the second term of the obama administration, because according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining what the administration thought at that time had happened in benghazi. and that, in john mccain's view, is unforgivable. >> maybe she could start out by publicly coming back on this show and saying, i was wrong. i gave the wrong information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> but until then, john mccain will block her potential nomination. and anybody's nomination. no secretary of state for the united states of america until john mccain is satisfied. susan rice, for the record, did not give wrong information on the sunday shows. she described accurately what the intelligence agencies were advising her
in the middle east forever but we'll have to see about that. thank you. gregg: the obama administration announcing new rules now that the healthcare law is beginning to kick in, but many americans don't even know what to expect. so we'll look at what is on tap and what it means for you and your doctor. ainsley: a business gets shot down in its attempt to opt out of the law for religious reasons, but the fight is far from over. we'll explain. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. playing sports is just my whole life. what's the rush? looking back, if it wasn't for shriners hospital, things would just be really, really different. i lost my leg when i was a kid. there was a time when i felt like i wasn't going to be able to walk again... it was a pretty bad accident but shriners showed me who i could be again. they turned my whole life around. they call it 'love to the rescue' and it really works
in another article about the disagreement between the obama administration about what was happening in the first term. now that the president has dealt with underwater homeowners deal with refinancing. >> the one big disagreement is about housing and whether he adequat adequated addressed the underwater mortgages. answer a small percentage of people who have needed help have gotten it. we're four years out of the crisis and the housing market is starting to recover. >> how are we prepared for anything that the president may want to tackle in the next term? how much have we rebounded? >> the economy is definitely rebounding. you can say that with confidence things are better. longer term there is great structural questions. people's income is not increasing. if the middle class income is not going up, you don't feel it getting better. we haven't resolved questions about whether we'll have an educated workforce for the future. >> okay. zachary, thank you so much going in. we appreciate that. >> thank you. >>> fresh inside to the filming of the new movie "lincoln" after the break. ♪
. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checkered record on national security. yes, as doug points out, he escalated the drone attacks but, of course, he ignored advance warnings of a terrorist attack in benghazi, ignored the pleas for help, how do you reconcile or explain that unless this is just a conflicted and unsure president? >>guest: well, it is fairly schizophrenic. if you just look at the president's approach on terrorists, right from the beginning of the administration, it is almost like he wanted to bend over backwards to respect the rights of terrorists who were
's address at the university in burma. they rejected me. this isn't the first member of president obama's administration to doze off. remember joe biden nodded off during the president's budget speech last year. he was thinking what he would do if he was president. former chief economic advisor larry summers could not keep his eyes open during the meeting. 5 hour energy all around, kids. >> alisyn: you can not fault hillary clinton with that travel schedule. talk about a wild encounter, we take to you texas for this one. two men were walking to a car when a deer attacked them. he jumped into the bed of the pick up and called police. >> he put his front paws on my feet, got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing them. he broke a police officer's rib, kicked a police officer in the leg. >> alisyn: the animal also caused some damage to the truck. it took more than five men to get the deer under control. >> steve: you don't hear much about how deer are apparently hooked on nicotine down there. >> alisyn: right. >> brian: remember the deer that came alive in that movie with -- in tommy bo
end. but watching the obama administration through a lincoln lens has been a great education for me. and my policies had already begun to change. i felt the kind of usual left impatience. and i think that impatience is enormously important. it's an engine, lincoln said it. he really preferred, he said, to deal with people of the left to people of the right because he felt the people of the left as he said had their eyes facing and people of the right on a couple of occasions were really primarily interested in aggregating their own power and there wasn't a whole lot. they were more susceptible to secession fever, for one thing, because the main thing for them was to stay in power and any kind of ideology was acceptable and we've seen recent examples of this. so, yeah, i think that there's such a thing, obviously, as too much patience with oppression and too much -- and it's easy to be patient when you're not the person immediately suffering. but on the other hand, too much impatience can make it impossible for anything to happen. i mean, you know, the crux of the civil war was that
that not just you have me on here saying shouldn't you raise taxes, you should ask the obama administration for four years, you've done no entitlement reform. put something on the table. >> i'd like to see how all the negotiations are done. i support that. what's your second thing? >> on c-span, cnn can be there, too. secondly, when it's finished, when it's decided, write it down. put it online for seven days. so the american people can read it. don't t.a.r.p. us again, rush us and say, sign this, sign this. it's really good. let the american people read it. if we do those two things lindsey graham will not be voting for tax increase because he'll be able to find out exactly what's in it and no one will get tricked into thinking there are real spending cuts when there aren't or the tax changes are diminimous when they're not. why do the taxpayers want it open -- >> i would like to see it on cnn and c-span for sure. we always like talking to you about this. grover norquist is going to be talking to piers morgan more time tonight. obviously at 9:00 p.m. eastern time here on cnn. >> soledad? >
about things like that and in this era, when i look at the amount of time, particularly in the obama administration, if you look at senior officials go to asia throughout the region and they have meetings or others and also the discussion that tends to coordinate with china, there seems to be a lot of efforts try to coordinate. looking out the value of the in the dispute and said that they were shocked and surprised by the level of miscommunication and assessment and the dangers of that between china and japan. so raises the question of whether or not -- i agree with you. i know china wants respect. but whether or not what you are seeing is a strategic or taxable gain by china to use this potential mr. stutzman to look like the unstable part in some of this to help push up the own interest. and that worries me a little bit. >> it is not of domination will respect. it is about whether it will be static or where the agreement will be dynamic. and there is no way that nations are going to agree on what will be the interest. it becomes explosive. >> the issue really is china, india, comp
leafy campuses that gave us an administration who sees government as the dream replacement. as young folks are saddled with debt and unemployment, obama wishes to expand the government reach, raising taxes on those laboring under the old dream. how can anyone believe in a dream when the leaders don't? they look stagnant earth and say that is better. america may enter a nationally recurring nightmare, i don't mean the one where dana and jasper show up as house gues guests. you hate the american dream so you are happy about this. >> dana: i haven't lived it at all. 60% of recent college grads can't find a job in what they studied, in the profession they chose. one of five bachelor degree holders are unemployed and 40% live at home. you can understand why they are upset about the future. i bet the poll is correct. >> greg: it's clear you don't care. is the american dream dead and should obama be impeached? >> kimberly: i saw that on the street corner today. >> bob: kimberly is eating. you ate it all. >> kimberly: i'm hiding it from you. >> greg: so you agree with me president obama shou
